ROGUE ONE Ending

ROGUE ONE’s ending is not what we think it is, according to Gareth Edwards. Here’s what he had to say about it: “Events take place that just shatter her life and send her off to basically be raised as a soldier in the midst of a war. She ends up not the person she was supposed to be.” Her journey is also a very Star Wars-y one: to redeem the sins of the father. “Even though we’re not telling the story of Luke Skywalker, it was important to me that we capture the same themes and emotion. But the film doesn’t unfold how you think. It’s not the same path as Star Wars.” Thanks to Entertainment Weekly for the new still.rogue-one-jyn-briefing
